"Can we build a wall high enough around this country so as to keep out these cheaper races; or will it be a feeble dam, leaving it to our descendants to abandon the country to blacks, browns, and yellows?"
    --Charles Davenport (1866-1944), American eugenicist


"As democracy is perfected, the office of president represents, more and more closely, the inner soul of the people. On some great and glorious day the plain folks of the land will reach their heart's desire at last and the White House will be adorned by a downright moron.
    --H.L. Mencken (1880-1956)

"Never ever give up.  Don't give up. Don't allow it to happen. If there's a concrete wall in front of you, go through it, go over it, go around it.  But get to the other side of that wall."

- Donald Trump, 2004

Quote from: Forbes
“Inside Trump’s circle, the power of illegal immigration to manipulate popular sentiment was readily apparent, and his advisers brainstormed methods for keeping their attention-addled boss on message,” writes Joshua Green, author of Devil’s Bargain: Steve Bannon, Donald Trump, and the Nationalist Uprising. “They needed a trick, a mnemonic device. In the summer of 2014, they found one that clicked.”

Joshua Green had good access to Trump insiders, including Sam Nunberg, who worked with Stone. “Roger Stone and I came up with the idea of ‘the Wall,’ and we talked to Steve [Bannon] about it,” according to Nunberg. “It was to make sure he [Trump] talked about immigration.”

The concept of the Wall did not click right away with the candidate. “Initially, Trump seemed indifferent to the idea,” writes Green. “But in January 2015, he tried it out at the Iowa Freedom Summit, a presidential cattle call put on by David Bossie’s group, Citizens United. ‘One of his pledges was, ‘I will build a Wall,’ and the place just went nuts,’ said Nunberg. Warming to the concept, Trump waited a beat and then added a flourish that brought down the house. ‘Nobody,’ he said, ‘builds like Trump.’”

The white house couldn't pay its water bill today.  :lulz:
I met a traveller from an antique land
Who said: Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, shattered underpance lies,
With blown elastic, and exploded back,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that mocked them and the heart that fed:
And on the pedestal these words appear:
"My name is Doktor Howl, Spag of Spags:
Look on my ass, ye Mighty, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that colossal wreck, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.

I'm 99% sure at this point that this has nothing to do with the wall at all but everything to do with tying the hands of Congressional Democrats so he can stall any investigations into himself (Muller investigation is already funded, but Congressional Dems can go after pretty much everything else)

Here's part of the "deal" Trump offered the house.  :lulz:

The Trump bill includes a provision to ban nationals of El Salvador, Guatemala or Honduras who are under 18 years old from eligibility for asylum unless they submit applications at a processing center in Central America. That means they cannot apply in the U.S. if they flee their home countries because of gang violence, as many have done.

Off-site processing centres are all the rage these days.  The EU has them in Libya, which is of course a wonderful example of a migrant policy that hasn't gone completely wrong and turned into a humanitarian crisis/people smuggling opportunity/actual slavery.

https://www.msn.com/en-us/money/markets/commerce-chief-tells-strapped-federal-workers-to-get-loans/ar-BBSG62p?ocid=spartanntp

Quote
Workers affected by the government shutdown should seek loans to pay their bills and financial institutions should make credit available, U.S. Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross said Thursday as employees were poised to miss their second paycheck.

In an interview on CNBC, Ross said it was "disappointing" that some federal workers were not showing up to work and that "there really is not a good excuse" for affected workers to not have money.
"The banks and the credit unions should be making credit available to them," said Ross, a billionaire investor. He noted the government had committed to give federal employees back pay, adding "there really is not a good excuse why there really should be a liquidity crisis."

"True, the people might have to pay a little bit of interest. But the idea that it's paycheck or zero is not a really valid idea,"s said. "They are eventually going to be paid."

Trump last week signed into law a measure to ensure that the roughly 800,000 affected federal workers receive back pay, but the law does not extend to private workers for federal contractors, or others whose livelihoods depend heavily on federal workers' business.
